This is a practical guide to 68 hill walks in North-West and Western Scotland. The author explains how to get there and what to expect. He includes walks of varying lengths and toughness from a challenging 16-mile scramble across the peaks of Sutherland to more gentle 6-mile hikes in the rolling hills of the Border Country. The walks have been chosen not only for their scenic beauty but wherever possible for historical interest, wildlife and plants, monuments, ruins and clan history. The introductory sections for each walk give background information which, it is hoped, will add greatly to the pleasure of the day's expedition. Sandison contributes regularly to "The Scotsman" and "The Trout and Salmon" and is known for his Radio Scotland broadcasts "Tales from the Loch".
